2011 Sidoxia – IC Greatest Hits

There was some entertaining dancing going on early in 2011, but for the most part, the year brought a lot of rock ‘n’ roll on its way to what looks like a flattish year on a return basis.  Sidoxia Capital Management and Investing Caffeine (IC) followed everything from the Royal Wedding and Charlie Sheen to the debt ceiling debate and the Arab Spring. Amongst all the celebration and chaos, IC pounded away at the keyboard and reported on the financial markets and the virtues of investing. Out of the 80 or so postings at IC this year, here are my top 11 favorites of 2011:

•  Spoonfuls of Investment Knowledge: Classic investment quotes and tenets.

•  10 Ways to Destroy Your Portfolio: Investment mistakes to avoid.

•  Solving Europe and Your Deadbeat Cousin: Putting the European financial crisis in context.

•  A Serious Situation in Jackson Hole:  The “Situation” meets Ben Bernanke.

•  It’s the Earnings, Stupid: Stock prices and the inextricable ties with earnings.

•  Innovative Bird Keeps All the Worms:  Innovative not first mover gains the prize.

•  Snoozing Your Way to Investment Prosperity: How to invest and sleep well during financial market mayhem.

•  The Fallacy of High P/E’s: Sustainably high earnings growth can trump high P/E ratios.

•  Gospel from 20th Century Investment King: Investment maxims from legend Sir John Templeton.

•  The 10 Investment Commandments: Charles Ellis passes down key laws to investment disciples.

•  Share Buybacks and Bathroom Violators: Pet peeves in the bathroom and share repurchase.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from Investing Caffeine and Sidoxia Capital Management!

My 10 Holiday Thank You’s of 2010

Source: Photobucket

10.) I am thankful for “QE2” (Quantitative Easing) because it broadens my thesaurus with another acronym meaning “printing press.”

9.) I am thankful for the Goldilocks “-flation” fears. Not too hot inflation and not too cold deflation makes Goldy feel just right.

8.) I am thankful for weak housing prices. Who wants to pay high property taxes?!

7.) I’m thankful to have another bloody, partisan midterm election behind us resulting in gridlock. Oops, I forgot, we just started a bloody, partisan 2012 Presidential election cycle. 

6.) I am thankful for May’s “Flash Crash” because I’m an adrenaline junkie and the financial crisis did not provide enough excitement in 2008-2009.

5.) I am thankful for the Irish banking system bailout. Misery loves company.

4.) I am thankful for higher commodity prices, specifically my long wheat futures position. I’ve effectively hedged my daily breakfast bowl of Wheaties

3.) I am thankful for the Chinese…for supporting our gluttonous consumerism by purchasing all our debt.

2.) I am thankful for a record year at Sidoxia. The launch and leading performance of Fusion added  to a memorable 2010 (read more).  

1.) I am thankful for the thousands of readers and followers who stopped by my site in 2010. Not only were the compliments appreciated by the die-hards (“Caffeiners”), but also the constructive feedback from casual visitors (i.e., “Slome, you’re a moron”).

Happy New Year and best wishes for a prosperous 2011!
